Does anyone know of a way to suppress a specific Event Log Message that is constantly writing to the Event Log?

Thanks!

Hi meade470

Maybe you need to be a bit more specific.

Is it a message from Windows or from a 3rd party application.

There are methods for suppressing some events in the Security eventlog

There are several, actually. As an example, this one from Endpoint fills our logs whenever a virus scan runs, which is daily:

Event Type:      Warning
Event Source:      Symantec AntiVirus
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      6
Date:            9/7/2010
Time:            6:01:35 AM
User:            N/A
Computer:      CORP-SERVER
Description:
 

Could not scan 1 files inside [NAME OF FILE, WHICH IS USUALLY A COMPRESSED FILE, ETC.]

Here's another example from the System Log

Event Type:      Information
Event Source:      WinHttpAutoProxySvc
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      12503
Date:            9/9/2010
Time:            11:17:07 AM
User:            N/A
Computer:      CORP-SERVER
Description:
The description for Event ID ( 12503 ) in Source ( WinHttpAutoProxySvc ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: 15.

If you have a look in hklm\system\curentcontrollset\services\eventlog

you will find all apps, services listed that will report to event log.

But I wouldn't delete anything

for symantec it is normal that it reports maybe search for disabling warnings for symantec av

for the other        WinHttpAutoProxySvc this is a service check it it is correct installed or there are some entries left in the registry

Event logs must be integer therefore it will not be possible to suppress anything rather check the error
You could filter the log but this feature is limited
